TW: Transphobia

(Link)

Report this guy for harassment on Facebook if you feel comfortable doing so.  He’s horribly disrespectful to the transgender community.  He doesn’t deserve to have a voice on social media.

* Please note this could be really triggering; it’s Facebook and many of the comments are equally as transphobic as the original post and the article, so be aware of that. *  

I just think he needs to be called out because despite all of the feedback, he somehow still thinks he has the right to make purely hateful posts under the guise of protecting femininity, somehow, even though he has no right to speak for women and he spends the entire post and article misgendering a woman.  

* Update: I’ve been informed that this guy is frequently hateful and insensitive. As that is the case I’d give him as little attention as possible in terms of commenting on the post, but still report him. If enough people do maybe the issue will be brought to Facebook’s attention; I don’t know if they’ll do anything about it but maybe he can at least be suspended.

matt walsh is actually half an old sandwich that someone found in the garbage and taught how to speak pass it on

hey friends if you come across anyone one your social media posting these articles:

“’Sex Change’ Surgery: What Bruce Jenner, Diane Sawyer, and You Should Know” by Walt Heyer in Public Discourse

“Calling Bruce Jenner a Woman Is an Insult to Women” By Matt Walsh in The Blaze

i wrote a pretty lengthy response to my friend going through a lot of the arguments the articles make. you are free to send this to people or use the points to help craft your responses. it’s not perfect but it might help mitigate some of the negative information going around.

Share as much as you want, we’re all in this fight together. just don’t plagiarize me in your school papers ;)

Please go and report this blatant transphobe. He is spreading so much hate and a worrying amount of people are agreeing with him.

He believes transgenderism kills feminism as well as calling Caitlyn Jenner a “monstrosity”. He believes Caitlyn is an insult to women.

Please report this Facebook page, if you’re not convinced, read this article

If a kid is introverted he doesn’t need to be broken like a dog. He doesn’t need to change his personality. He doesn’t even need to “come out of his shell.” He’s not hiding in a shell. He just doesn’t feel the need to chatter incessantly with everyone in the room. If that makes you uncomfortable — that’s your problem. There’s nothing objectively preferable or superior about extraversion.

Ian and Walsh and Matt were the funniest people I knew and Ian had once punched a drunk guy wearing a sombrero who yelled gross stuff to me from across the street. I felt protected.

It’s easier to be brave when you’re not alone.

We were young and foolish and didn’t know what we were up against. Thank god. We said good-bye to our friends and our cheap and beautiful apartment in the scary neighborhood. We packed all of our things and my yellow Lab, Suki, and pulled away in a U-Haul truck. We had no apartment or job or place to perform in New York City. I didn’t really know who I was, but improv had taught me that I could be anyone. I didn’t have to wait to be cast—I could give myself the part. I could be an old man or a teenage babysitter or a rodeo clown. In three short years Chicago had taught me that I could decide who I was. My only job was to surround myself with people who respected and supported that choice. Being foolish was the smartest thing to do.

“The creation of the UCB Theater is by far my proudest professional accomplishment. We were just a group from Chicago, trying to get a TV show and an agent and have people notice us. We directed and produced and wrote some shows and we needed a house for those shows, so we created a theater, and that theater created another theater, and now we have a theater in Los Angeles and now we’re producing stuff on a bigger level, and I have to tell you I never would have dreamt we’d be operating the way we are now.” - Amy Poehler
